Pale Prominents are having quite a purple patch at the moment, too, with a pair of them caught on 18th and 19th May. Overall 19th May was less productive - the sky was rather clear, with a fairly bright moon, overnight - but did bring our first ever Orange Footman, and (not forgetting the micros), a neat little Grapholita jungiella, as well as the first Common Wave and Pale Mottled Willow of the year.

So overall not a bad couple of days: tonight is the warmest I can remember this year, and quite cloudy, so it may be that some more interesting specimens will be awaiting in the morning...
